Skills Sportsmanship Team Concepts

@ Our Cape Cod Summer Basketball Camp

Choosing the right basketball Camp for your son or daughter is a very important responsibility. We believe the Mid-Cape Hoop School, with our historically low player-to-instructor ratio and highly qualified instructors with professional, educational, coaching and player backgrounds, presents an outstanding learning opportunity.

Our emphasis on individual attention, discipline, sportsmanship and ability-level-grouping will provide a love of the game, skill development and the motivation to work on the techniques learned throughout the year.
